Pit Fighter


Published 1991


Pit-Fighter is a 1990 arcade game by Atari Games, notable for its early use of digitized live actors. The Japanese arcade release was published by Konami. The graphic animation for the player character(s) and opponents were created through a bluescreen process, where the various poses & moves of the characters were acted out by hired actors in front of a video camera. The game's on-screen character animation are replays of the actual footage, not a rotoscoped (redrawn) animation as was common in other games. Live-action shooting reached a brief highpoint with later arcade titles such as Mortal Kombat and NBA Jam, before gaming trends shifted away.

Ports of the game were released for the Super NES, Mega Drive/Genesis and Sega Master System in 1991. Ports were also released in 1991 for various computers - the Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, Commodore 64, DOS PCs, Sinclair and ZX Spectrum. In February 1993, the Spectrum version was released as part of the Super Fighter compilation with Final Fight and WWF WrestleMania. MegaTech magazine said the graphics were "badly defined with rough animation". Mega placed the Mega Drive version at #27 in their Top Mega Drive Games of All Time. The Super NES port has received mostly negative reviews for poor control and missing features such as the interactive audience and weapons, as well as missing three characters (Southside Jim, Heavy Metal and Mad Miles).
